Grishma Jashapara

Managing Partner

Grishma established a successful news photographic agency whilst still at university followed later by her own record company. She met Alex whilst working as European Operations Manager for LVMH cosmetics brand, Hard Candy. When Fusion launched in 1998 Alex asked her to join him and she spent 5 successful years with the business. 

In 2003 Grishma was inspired to return to her entrepreneurial roots and set up her own recruitment company where she worked with leading retailers, suppliers and manufacturers such as Debenhams, Marks & Spencer, Dewhirst & Courtaulds. Presented with the opportunity of working with global brands and retailers on an international platform, Grishma rejoined Fusion in 2009 and in 2014 became Managing Partner.

"Working with Fusion Associates to find the Managing Director for my company has been an exciting and seamless process.

As the role was a new one for the company, I enjoyed the support and dedication that Fusion provided in helping me find a suitable candidate. I approached Fusion with equal amounts of importance being placed on the candidate’s abilities as well as them being a cultural fit with aligned values. After a thorough screening process, I was presented with a shortlist of candidates whom I proceeded to interview. I was genuinely impressed by all the candidates, but finally narrowed it down based on certain criteria, and I am delighted with my choice."
